Surely there is security but not noticeable. People are friendly and look much happier than their Mexican neighbors.
Pushing my wife in a wheelchair i could only visit the local shops. Security is tight and i imagine needed. Still gives me the willies to see all the big guns and dogs. The hanging floating intertubes with butts and legs were cute at Senor Frogs and i wish i'ld brought my camera at this stop.
Beautiful place but so many police and big guns, kinda gives you a feeling that you're safe but visiting a prison for the elite.
Took a cab ride there. It even came with a separate tour guide. It's a beautiful place but i'm afraid it's a political football. I believe they are loosing the cruising business after this year. According to the guide everything worth seeing was donated by the mayor. Sounds like Louisiana politics. But do some walking if you can. No stop signs and people respected me pushing a wheelchair and i was never run over. Ha! I'ld say by far the best stop we made however on a previous cruise we taxied Belize and it's a place i would live to retire. Just don't want to live next to that McAfee nut. Ha again!
